Back to school

Well, we have made it through two weeks of kindergarten, and I'm happy to say that Rachel is thoroughly enjoying herself.

She was disappointed that her two best friends were in other classes, and I journaled about that after we got back from meet-the-teacher night.  I used Trixie Scraps' Adoption Day (love the little kids in that kit) to scrap my thoughts.



Thankfully, she did have a few old friends in her class, and she has met a few new ones as well.

I scrapped a layout of her first day of school using All About Me:  The Littles by Trixie Scraps.  It's not a traditional school kit, but right now, I am loving these bright colors!


She's been a good listener, according to her teacher.  She did come home on Monday and told us that she had to move her stick to yellow...we told her that it was alright, because we all have bad days.  She was encouraged, and reminded us several times that she'd start back in green the next day.  On Tuesday afternoon, when I asked her what the best part of the day was, she told me it was "staying on green."  My sweet girl might not mind pushing buttons at home, but she really does try to be on her best behavior at school.

With that, I'm signing off for now.  I'll be back in the not-too-distant future with a little somethin' for you!

Anybody thirsty?

When it's hot outside (like it generally is here at this time of year), I love a cold glass of lemonade.  Personally, Chick-Fil-A is my favorite, but now they have some competition, in the form of my daughter.  LOL.  Rachel came out of her room yesterday announcing that she had an idea for a lemonade stand, and so off we went to the kitchen to mix up a small pitcher.
Now, she didn't set up shop on the sidewalk...she sold the lemonade in the living room.  Suffice it to say, she only had two customers, but we did give her repeat business.  And upon NiNi's request, I had Rachel share her recipe, and decided to scrap it for myself.
I used Kristin Cronin-Barrow's Freshly Squeezed; I ran a sepia filter on the photo and then did some customizing on the color.


I will definitely be back next week...Little Missymeets her teacher, goes back to dance, and starts kindergarten...I will be taking lots of photos!

A coupon and a giggle for you :)

Hi everyone...I can't believe that I'm actually posting again...what is going on here?!!  Today is just a quick post to let you know that Tracy (aka Trixie) has a guest shop opening up at Polka Dot Plum today.  She is adding some of her best kits to their site, and she is sharing a coupon with you!


And now for a bit of a giggle...today a friend shared this on Facebook, and my hubby and I both cracked up. I haven't watched Family Feud in ages, but I might have to start watching again!



And if you haven't checked out Glozell before...this makes me laugh so hard that I cry...


With that, I'm off to clean house (or waste time on Facebook more than likely).  Have a wonderful week!
